Welcome to LQ. Two suggestions: first, make sure you have the kernel source installed (you can do this with YaST). Second, add nVidia to your repository list

More info:

Update your Kernel via YOU (YaST Online Update). Use

YaST -> Software -> Software Repositories -> Add

Protocol: HTTP

Directory on Server: /opensuse/10.3

to add the NVIDIA http server as additional installation source.
Now use

YaST -> Software -> Software Management

to install the NVIDIA driver. Select the following packages:

Okay, that driver is added and installed, resolution is improved, but when i try to turn on multiple monitors, and test it, it says

Sax library: Success
x configuration: no information

It actually says that whenever i try to change anything in the "graphics card and monitor" screen
